Gareth Malone is back with a new quest to find the top amateur choir in Britain.

This time, it’s not just a cappella he’s interested in: the choirs can be from any musical tradition.

Four regional heats will be followed by a boot camp, a semi-final and a three-choir grand final.

In the first of a six-part series, Gareth hunts for a choir to represent Scotland and the North.
